Try turning it off at the breaker. It is way easier than pulling it out and unplugging it. Also, leave it powered off for at least 7 to 10 minutes. This sometimes resets the control board and stops the beeping. If the beeping starts up again you may need a new control board. At this point it is a good idea to call in a pro. Good Luck

I have a Kenmore 790.4670 oven. I was brewing beer on stovetop for over 2 hours and must have tripped a runaway temperature sensor in the oven. The oven was not in use at all this day. After letting completely cool, and tripping breaker, and unplugging range, the error code F10 still displayed as well as the oven door being locked and the oven exhaust fan running constantly at full blast, even though unit was completely cooled down. Stove top elements worked fine. Heres how I fixed it. FYI im not an expert, or even an electrician. But I own a screwdriver and some tools and know to unplug things first. Anyway, to my knowledge there are multiple oven temperature sensors in these units. On mine, there is one in the back upper left of oven located on back wall, one appears to be in the back of the bottom warmer drawer, and one is also tucked under the front right burner, but not visible from the oven. This is the sensor that tripped on me. See pic for what the sensor looks like. Ok, so heres how to get access to the sensor underneath the front right burner. Take off knobs. Unscrew with a big flat head screwdriver the large weird looking black "bolts" just under the knobs. There should be two slots for a flathead screwdriver on the top of each "bolt" Gently lift up the oven control piece that now lost and flip over and lay on stove top. A rubber gasket may come lose. You can re set that later. Now, with a flashlight, look into the cavity area behind the stainless steel plate, and look under where the right hand controls were. You should see a small circular item with 2 bolts attaching it to the oven frame. Now most boards on here say to test these items and replace them and so forth. I simply pushed in the red "button" that was protruding out from the center of this small circular sensor, heard a little click, and that fixed it. Re put everything back together. Cleaned everything. Plugged oven back in, reset clock and held down the stop button for 3 seconds to unlock the oven door. Hope this helps.

I continue to get code F11 on my Kenmore Elite Gas Range Oven and therefore, I am unable to unlock / open my oven door. I have pressed and held down the STOP button as well as the oven light button.

Your model number should be much longer than 790 30 Open drawers and doors to look for the whole model number around the frame.

With the whole model number you can get more information at Sears Parts Direct. There are parts diagrams and user manuals and you can order parts.

This site gives instructions for repairing F11 and recommends checking the temperature probe and tells how to do it.

Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the range or oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code.

F3 or F30 means that there may be a problem with the oven sensor.
Your oven sensor may need to be replaced.

The front panel keeps showing F10 Err message ?? And it won't stop beeping, any idea what it could be??

The F10 error code means that was a runaway over heating that occured in the oven. The things that could cause the over to overheat to the exterme of the F10 error code reqirements is during self clean normal cleaning temp. IF it wasn't cleaned just before the F10 error code,first the oven temtature sensor needs to be replaced then if F10 comes back after the sensor is replaced the computer control board needs to be replaced.

Sorry to read about your problem
Your F10 code means Runaway Temperature and f30 means open probe connection. try this and see problem comes back.
1. Unplug the unit or turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds.
2. Now, restore the power to the appliance by plugging it back in or turning the circuit breaker back on.
3. Check to see if the error code is still displayed on the range.

Getting error code F10 on Kenmore model 47889603 wall oven

Leaving the breaker off for the time I was at work (about 9 hours) seems to have cleared the problem. May have just been an abberation and not an actual problem with the appliance. Since the first step with most electronics that develop a fault of some type is to power down for a while then power back up to reset the electronics, I decided to see if that would do it and it did. Thanks for having a site to go to for assistance, though!!!! -Mike-

Kenmore Elite slide in range F30 error

I had the same F30 error problem but fixed it. On my professional series Frigidaire, there are 2 resettable red button locations. I discovered that only one is in the rear of the oven. After going to the breaker box and shutting off the power, pull out the stove enough to work, unscrew the rear screws (I didn't unscrew all of them, just enough to work back there). The small red button is on a small black round piece with two purple wires feeding to it. That was not my problem. Mine was the other red button behind the control panel. Pull off all 4 knobs, unscrew by hand the large black rings that are underneath the knobs, pull out the whole panel. Look back and right (below where the right knobs were located) to find the 2nd red small button. Push to reset. Check this one first since it is easier to do.
